July Skies Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
July Skies/epic45 member Benjamin Holton drops a solo LP under the guise of My Autumn Empire. Anyone who’s copped an earful of previous MAE LPs will be expecting plenty of lush, folky acoustic guitar on Oh, Leaking Universe. They won't be disappointed, but they should also be aware that Holton’s chucked some electronics into the mix this time. The addition of synths and drum machines give tracks like ‘Frost On My Shoes’ a bit of a The War On Drugs feel.

Dreaming of Spires by July Skies? Must be some kind of ambient, dreampop about lost youth and grey English mornings and rolling hills with distant pylons gliding through like a river of steel and electric hum?
Yep, that’s about right. July Skies come from the Midlands and have been active since 1999. The music mines nostalgia, that very British of thing, to create ambient music which is both expanding and vast, but equally as insular and emotional. It’s a thing of beauty this one.
180g vinyl LP. Limited to 300 copies.
